Obsession, 2015


A series looking at over obsession with an individual. I gathered my then boyfriends discarded possessions such as empty bottles, bus tickets, food packaging, and old socks. These photos compile his possessions into different taxonomies to produce this overlay series. I collected objects which would be overlooked by a normal individual, but hold value for the obsessed. Using the black space I alienated these objects from the expected environment, into a crisp isolated world. This focuses our view on the objects, making us pay attention to them, allowing us to give them value.
